I found a roll of corkboard with sticky back in a charity shop a few weeks ago and it’s been sitting on the mountain of crap on my desk awaiting a purpose. So recently, when I was having fun with Washi tape, I had a brain wave.
On the side of The Girls’ wardrobe, above their new bookcase, I fixed the cork in place (NB: that back is VERY sticky. Like stick-to-your-hands-whilst-you-are-trying-to-attach-it-sticky. No wonder it was in a Charity shop!!)
Next, I covered all the imperfect edges with a straight line of Washi tape. This was helped massively by the inset edge of the wardrobe. And finally, I created a criss-cross pattern over the board to give it the look of a pinboard. Obviously it’s their bedroom and they are 2 and 4 so I have no intention of letting them use real pins at this stage. I attached a few bits and pieces with more washi. Perfect.
